I live so close to London and don’t venture in as much as I would like. But yesterday I spent the day in the big smoke and it was fantastic, Stomping around Bond street and Oxford Street. I went solo and met up with a few fellow bloggers so a little late lunch and a book swap.

Think this is the first I’ve consciously bought something pink to wear. I love the dress style of this shirt and the band across the bottom adds a frill. It’s definitely one of the more girlie pieces in my wardrobe.
Also leopard print is everywhere at the moments, so I dug out this coat with it’s on trend tulle trimming. Adding accessorise like my mirrored sunglasses and my shoes make this look a little more special. I loving the fishnet trend and am so excited to wear it with everything again. I couldn’t get my hands on a black pair or fishnet socks so I got white. I think they add another element to the outfit.

Mix and match vibrant colours in the photography studio at uni. Poppy and I stayed after class was over to take outfit photos. Most of this outfit is vintage, either from charity shops or vintage fairs. The little golf broach I’ve had for years.

I always cherish the times I get to spend time with my friend Rianne. She’s moved back to London, so I see even less of her. But we did get to spend a couple of hours together and we celebrated my birthday. I thought I’d share what she every kindly gave me for my 23rd, because she has great taste and I think it’s kind of tradition here on The Curly Haired Girl. Remember this post?
We had lunch at Chiquito I had the Spicy Chicken Texan Torta, which as delicious with skin on fries. Rianne had a burrito. We drank tea ‘something’ cocktails, then a churro milkshake before we headed to bowling. I of course won because I’m to competitive.
Mini hair clips
The motivational quotes ever girl needs.
The chiquest knuckle duster you’ll ever see.
mango lip balm.
Delicate miss matched stud earrings.
When we were in primary school together I’m sure we first bonded over our joint love for rabbits.
Camelia necklace (love the name) I wore it as soon as I saw it. Rianne really knows my taste.
I love the marble decoration and the pomegranate bath marbles smell amazing, I can’t wait to try them.
I’ve been truly spoilt, thank you.
I think I might have to make Rianne my personal shopper, because I love everything here.
Thank you for reading, I’m off to uni today.
Après Ski anyone?
I loved last seasons sportswear trend and Pucci’s 70’s take, with their ski style. I’ve muted this trend to fit into my daily style,
This bold graphic ski jumper with heeled tan boots is just the subtle 70’s look I love. I added a silver peace necklace.
Also it’s my birthday today, i’m 23. These photos were taken at lunch with my parents.

A group of lovely chaps decided to help me with my outfit photos today. I did think they were a little short for storm troopers.
I spent the day at a village fayre, filled with stalls, food and live music. Ofcourse I took some outfit of the day photos on the hay bails at the end.
